Logline: 
Most ghosts haunt for the most logical reason being their spirits have not been appeased and such is the case of Abbott Conway, a man who was murdered in his own home.
Synopsis/Details: 

A bad night's fishing for catfish, brings the Devers brothers fishing boat to within eyeshot of the house on Cabot Road, a house noted for being haunted.

For both Frankie and Johnny Devers it was a time to explore the empty house, or was it empty.

With only the light of a full moon to guide them, the two boys worked their way to the rear of the abandoned home. The boys climb the few steps to the rear porch, that creak eerily with each step they take. Johnny finds the door unlocked and both boys enter the former Conway home and after a few steps inside, one of them trips a wire releasing a prerecorded taped message that sent the boys quickly out of the house and back to their boat.

Days later, with two of their friends from school, in the Devers backyard, one of their friends is already bored, only two days out of school for the summer, and he suggests taking a jaunt to the house on Cabot Road, and call their friends, The Devers brothers, chicken for not wanting to go, but they end up going anyway. When the ghost of Abbott Conway is seen by one of the Devers' friends, they quickly exit and swear never to return. Frankie Devers; however, feels it necessary to return to the Conway home to try and talk to Abbott's ghost to find out why his spirit is not appeased. While talking to the ghost of Abbott Conway, Frankie finds out who killed his father's best friend, and where the evidence is that would surely arrest one man and possibly four men for his murder. The only problem was getting that evidence legally, where it was located on the murderer's property.

I was a writer/author before entering the world of screenwriting. I got into screenwriting because several readers of my book Destiny of the Divas, told me they'd like to see it as a screenplay. Nobody knows my characters the way I do, so I chose to write the screenplay myself.All my present screenplays are from books I've written. I am a retired old man of 72 who loves to fish and enjoys a good game of cribbage. Go to bio
